In Russian, Belarusian, Lithuanian, Polish and Ukrainian cuisines, syrniki (Russian: сы́рник[и]; Ukrainian: сирники; Belarusian: сырнікі) are fried cottage cheese pancakes, garnished with sour cream, jam, honey, or apple sauce. The cheese mixture may contain raisins for extra flavour. In Russia they are also known as tvorozhniki (творо́жники).

They are generally eaten as a dessert, after the main course, but can sometimes be served as a breakfast dish.
